3 Fires Keep Crews In The Cold Tuesday

Fire damaged a house early Tuesday on Billy Bible Road, sheriff's Deputy Billy Walters said in a report.

Occupant Clyde Laws told deputies he put a log in the fireplace Tuesday and went to bed. He was later awakened by a smoke detector.

A piece of wood had rolled out of the fireplace onto the floor and burned an ottoman, a table, an area rug and about a 3-foot diameter of hardwood flooring.

Damage to the ottoman, rug and table totals $350.

"The home also received a lot of smoke damage," the report said.

No injuries were reported.


A fire Tuesday night destroyed a 12-by-20-foot wood garage and storage shed at 1610 Little Warrensburg Road, Walters said in another report.

The garage had no heat source but did have a 110-volt power supply for lighting.

Resident Billy Carter told deputies he noticed the garage was on fire about 11 p.m. Tuesday.

"By the time the fire department got there, the wood building was already on the ground," the report said.

No one had been inside the building for two days.

An electrical wire was run into the garage from a house breaker box, the report said.

No injuries were reported.

Destroyed in the fire were a riding lawn mower, three new car batteries, a welder, two battery chargers, an air compressor, two chain saws and two tires and wheels. The items are worth a total of $3,000.

Two trucks, a Ford F-150 pickup and a Ford F-500, also sustained heat damage.


Investigators are still trying to determine the cause of a fire that heavily damaged a house Tuesday morning at 3850 Newport Hwy.

Brandon Smith, chief of the DeBusk Volunteer Fire Department, said a heater in the back of the wood-frame house may have sparked the fire, which was called in about 6:53 a.m. Tuesday.

"They turned the heater up the night before," Smith said.

There were no injuries. The extreme cold Tuesday hindered an investigation, Smith said.

Investigators should be back at the fire scene today, Smith said.
